Kirill Rozhdestvensky (St. Petersburg State Marine Technical University)

Vice President of Saint-Petersburg State Marine Technical University


He is the author of the book Aerodynamics of a Lifting System in Extreme Ground Effect (2000). This book describes a mathematical model of flow past a lifting system performing steady and unsteady motion in close proximity to the underlying solid surface (ground). The author consid-ers various approximations based on the general method of matched asymptotic expansions applied to lifting flows. Particular importance is attached to the case of extreme ground effects describing very small relative ground clearances. Practitioners involved in the design of wing-in-ground effect vehicles will find in this book all the relevant formulae and calculated data for the prediction of aerodynamic characteristics in this important limiting case. More generally, this book is suitable for graduate students, researchers and engineers working or lecturing in the area of theoretical aerodynamics.

In 9.03.2013, he attended The Society for Underwater Technology Technical Conference(SUTTC2013) and wrote Study of Submersion of a Body Equipped with Buoyancy Engine with Account of Density Profile and Hull Compression. This paper contains an analysis of submersion of a body, equipped with buoyancy engine, based on a simplified mathematical model, accounting for depthwise density profile and hull compression.
